we are currently looking at moving from Lotus LS5 across to Moodle.
main reason is price. We have already paid for LS4 and LS5 and now we
need to pay again for LMS. No doubt next year there will be a LMS 2 etc
Other reasons are hardware requirements, moodle has been shown to scale well and with much less grunt at its disposal.
We dont use the collaboration part of Learningspace, just the core component, so it is really overkill for what we need.
we are working through what needs to be done, we have setup a server
and we would like to create some courses so we can show the boss.
main issue at the moment is importing the course structure from ls5
into moodle. We really dont want to manually create all the pages again
so we are hoping we can automate it to some extent.
In learningspace the structure is:
in moodle we can create category, sub cateogry and courses so the hierachy allows us to have the same breakdown of content.
learningspace, when I move courses between servers I do an AICC export
to a file. I can then import the file via the admin interface and all
my courses are there.
Is there any way I can do something similar in Moodle?
Has anyone upgraded from LS5 -> moodle and overcome this obstacle?
